Geneva’s jet d’eau

 A still photograph can hardly do justice to the immense power of Geneva’s iconic water fountain, which throws 500 litres of water per second 140 metres (459 feet) into the air above Lake Geneva. The city’s most famous landmark, floodlit at night, was installed in 1951, replacing an 1891 fountain that reached only 30 metres (98 feet). The only thing that will stop the present jet, which uses lake water, is ice or an unusually strong wind.
